Completely full!!!! If you haven't sent in your name and gotten a personal confirmation message from the organizer, you are on the waitlist.
We will have our very own tour guide to explore 'a unique building that is historic and meaningful to the Los Angeles community—a former Scottish Rite Masonic Temple built by Millard Sheets in 1961—into a public space for exhibiting contemporary art.' This will be so fun and interesting!!
The Marciano Art Foundation was established by Maurice and Paul Marciano to grant the public access to the Marciano Art Collection through presentations of rotating, thematic exhibitions housed in a permanent exhibition space in Los Angeles.
The collection contains works by well-established, mid-career and emerging artists, predominantly from the 1990s to present. It is the Marcianos’ desire to share such forward-thinking and dynamic artworks with Los Angeles—their home for the past 35 years—as well as with the rest of the world. By opening up their collection to the public, it is their hope that the public will be inspired to appreciate and engage in the transformative power of contemporary art.
The experimental approach MAF embraces, allows the foundation to continuously re-imagine itself and change shape in response to new developments in the world of contemporary art. Experimentation and evolution are two of the core values embedded in the conception of the foundation.
AFTER: You can join us at Cafe Jack in Korea Town for some lunch while we watch and chat.
NOTE: Please DO NOT be late!!! All members of our group must enter the museum together; we will gather in the sculpture garden outside of the main entrance on Lucerne Blvd between 11 - 11:15am prior to our appointment so we will be ready when a staff member meets us 10 minutes before our start time which is 11:30a.
PARKING: There is free parking available in the lot directly behind the Foundation, accessible off of Lucerne. Because it is limited, however, we do encourage carpooling where possible! Visitors must remove their vehicle from the lot when they leave MAF.
We appreciate any and all donations so we can continue to offer more diverse tours and events. If you would like to donate, you can donate directly to the host at the events or go to our Donate web page.
